Yup, started with bikes running red lights, now cars too...... smile_angry.gif

Mostly are container trucks. Just missed one a couple of weeks back. I was in the left most lane saw this bugger flashing headlight 50m away with speed around 80km/h or so, beside me in the middle lane was a bus and right lane was an Iswara, due to blockage from the middle lane bus, therefore unaware of this container truck approaching, this Iswara accelerate upon green light, luckily he floor the pedal and there was enough power to zoom ahead and missed this container truck by inch. smile_angry.gif

Actually...to install a mobile CCTV is a very good idea to investigate how accident happens.

THere's a BMW E39 wrapped lamp post yesterday around 6pm along Tebrau Highway JB outside traffic police HQ at flyover to Inner Ring Road. Driver survived, not sure if there's any passenger. Too bad I cannot take photo on the other side. The lamp post intruded till front passenger seat position. IF there's passenger, I don't think got any chances of survival.

Most likely cause by aquaplanning, as this stretch always have trapped water pool after heavy rain. Even a bimmer can damage until like this. I wonder what happen if it was a cheaper car.

Cheaper car might be driving slower, hence no aquaplanning.

Thats the thing about aquaplanning, when it happen its all too late.
Which is why we can see people still going fast in heavy rain.
